Actively participate and learn about the opportunities, challenges, and strategic needs in four key areas: 1) actions to address the politicization of standards processes; 2) new techniques to coalesce diverse stakeholder groups to address standards-related challenges; 3) honing the messages and tools needed to communicate the importance of standards and participation in standards development; and 4) how to enhance effective participation and leadership within national and international standards organizations while building a standards literate workforce.
